, lee make an exception here. not only will obama appoint rice to succeed clinton, but she will be confirmed. what do you think? do you agree? >> well, he's a columnist and i'm a reporter. i don't do predictions either way. lee say this. if you look at the senate, democrats have 55 votes. you need 60 votes to proceed. you need to five republicans willing to debate her confirmation and may inevitably vote against it. they have done this a few time where they proceed to a bill, they avoid a filibuster and then vote against it. in this case can all they need to do is find enough republicans that say, look, the president has enough to confirm whoever they want and i'll inevitably vote no. it could happen. the fact that mccain has now backed off a little bit and said i'm willing to meet with her, i'm willing to hear her out, that suggests softening and they take their cues on foreign policy. most of them do. so if he's starting to lessen his opposition, perhaps this will return to a serious discussion about what happened in libya, why were the four americans killed? why were sec
